Sorry.  My fault.  I pointed at the top of tree that you referred
to the snapshot.  I should have been paying more attention.

I'm guessing I should have been pointing at

commit 80e74a27c55c01221091e3eec930c2ac4433c22c

    libsmb/namequery.c: add saf_join_store() function

    saf_join_store() should be called after a successful
    domain join, the affinity to the dc used at join time
    has a larger ttl, to avoid problems with delayed replication.

And since the domain join code was rewritten to use libnet
in 3.2, this would explain why the commit doesn't seem to exist
in another branch.
